Motorcity Forever by Guts-N-Effort Motorcity Forever by Guts-N-Effort
enjoy the rest of the series, only few more episodes left. and i promise my did my best for the finale.

i always ask myself why do i animate til 5 in the morning for a cartoon? i just want to animate some really awesome scenes people would really enjoy. even for just few seconds. and to step up my skill level to those oversea animator i look up to.

even though mc is canceled, its only the beginning for what we can do as artists, creators, and just for the sake of doing it out side the box and bring some fresh air into childhood memories.

the greatest thing when an episode airs is watching those comments on live stream when people go crazy! we were all there.

Sir, it SHOWS that someone was up till five in the morning working on this show. The animation, the character interactions, everything is absolutely beautiful. It's a damned shame it ended so early.

I hope someday I have a job where I stay up all night for the sheer love of it.

Why did it have to end man? I loved all the characters... I love the unaired pilot of the show too. I was disappointed with the cancellation of Motorcity.

It ended too soon. I mean, will Julie ever tell the gang that the megalomaniac Abraham Kane is really her dad? And Chuck not knowing how to drive?

When will this nightmare end for me!!!

It was a fun ride, while it lasted. In the end it comes down to budget though. I suppose the turnout wasn't as big as the producers would've hoped for a season 2 to come around.

It's a shame Disney canceled MC. It seems like they are purposely trying to keep all the crappy shows on and get rid of the great ones.

what also makes me mad is that since it was on Disney XD I couldnt watch this on tv I had to use my computer. sure disney channel is a mild version of abc, but they could have brought more viewers if they showed this master piece. MotorCity was what brought me back to look up disney XD. All I got left now is Tron. It's like Disney just wants to be a dick, and I hope that isnt the reason. Really bad call.

This is pretty depressing, why do all the low quality, money-chasing shows get all the production values.. This show is a classic with only one season, I just don't understand Disney's reasoning. Send this to adult swim or something if you must just get it back on the air :l

It's way, way, WAY too soon for this show to get cancelled! Why would Disney XD do this? Is it a crime to have amazing shows on TV?

I've been watching Motorcity ever since it first premired! This show is epic, creative, beautiful and inspiring. I love the characters, the music and everything else from this!

Do not give up, people! There has to be a way to save this show and give it the seasons it deserves! You all worked so hard on this...you deserve better! I seriously need a hug...

Just why... again?

God fuck EVERYTHING THIS SUCKS SO HARD! I hate it when stuff like this happens! Motorcity was so, so impressive in so many ways, I was elated to see such visually stunning cartoon on the air today! This show should have been iconic, not cancelled after season one! You guys deserved better than this. Y'all made this show fucking amazeballs.

Well, let it be known that I enjoy watching Motorcity a lot, and it really saddens me that the series had to come to an end so aprubtely.
There's a petition running for Disney to let go of the IP, and over 5000 people signed already which is great. Hope there can be something done about it.

Anyway, thanks for your hard work on the series, I think it really shows and really paid out :)
This is a wonderful picture, too!

Man I really want to thank you for all your dedication and hard work. The scenes you've animated are so badass and full of dynamism and energy, I was so impressed! I compare the quality of your work to one of my favourite studios here in Japan (Madhouse, which I look up to sooo much). Seriously, I admire you so much!
This imagine breaks my heart, not gonna lie, Motorcity was one of those shows that I looked forward to every week. I literally haven't felt this way about a cartoon since Biker Mice From Mars in 1994! All the characters are so likeable and the overall environment of the show? SO. COOL. I wish my vocabulary allowed me to express myself but English is not my main language. Anyway, Motorcity was a breath of fresh air in the world of animation and I'll keep contributing to the show anyway I can!! I live in Japan, I watch anime 24/7 due to my major, and lemme tell you that the animation in Motorcity is ridiculously good! Japanese love it! I've been showing it to people like Yasuhiko Yoshikazu, he had the biggest smile on his face.
We already got 6000+ signatures and a bunch load of people sending letters to Disney, that's how strong the fandom is and while I know there's only a slim chance of the show making it, it's better than no chance and truth is, we got hope! I got hope.
Sorry for the ramble, had to let it out. Keep up the amazing work, I'll be sure to watch anything that you guys work on! :heart:

thank you so much. its my goal to reach the level of animation from overseas. i studied so many 'anime mad' videos frame by frame and practiced a lot of figure drawing so i could animate better.. im very happy that this western show is well received in japan.
I visited madhouse last christmas, and what stuff i saw left me speechless that i want to practice so hard on draftsmanship so i could be as good as you guys one day.

at first, coming from Disney (and how its been now n'days or how any once cool tv channels are now) I honestly thought this show would be generic.
Looking back to when the first episode showed all expectations where dashes and replaced with a love for all that is Motercity
infact, Motercity greatly impacted on my already small hope of animating
it saddens me greatly that the show will come to a end now when it has so much to give
and I hope to see more from you and the Titmouse crew

I wonder if there'd be any interest in doing the show as a webseries, but maybe make full length feature type stories? I'd certainly spare an hour and a half of my time to sit at my desk and watch.
